COREtecPremium style and performance from COREtec
Vinyl plank flooring is an ultra-durable alternative to hardwood that’s perfect for homes and other residential areas. For the most part, vinyl plank flooring offers premium wear resistance, and it also is waterproof. One of the most dependable vinyl plank options is COREtec.
COREtec gets its name from its core structure. This core structure, which is a part of every COREtec flooring option, is made from recycled wood, bamboo dust, limestone, and virgin PVC. The construction of the core is not as important as the impact of the core on the floor as a whole. With this core structure, COREtec floors will stand up to virtually anything life throws their way. The vinyl planks will never collapse under heavy foot traffic, and they can also handle rolling traffic. More importantly, the core structure helps keep COREtec floors totally waterproof. Unlike hardwood planks, COREtec planks won’t expand or contract under humid or moist conditions. So, COREtec is suitable, and even preferred, for areas such as kitchens, bathrooms, and basements.
In addition to the core structure, all COREtec flooring options (except for COREtec One) have an attached cork underlayment. Given cork’s construction, the cork underlayment provides the floors with softness and warmth underfoot. As a result, COREtec floors are much more comfortable than hardwood and tile floors. Furthermore, cork is naturally resistant to mold and mildew, so the underlayment helps keep COREtec clean and healthy enough for your home.
